Ayacon 2011

13th August 2011: Complete! I bought the silver bracelet today from Primark for £2. You can never really see her bracelet so I thought this one with a few fake diamonds in it would be very pretty and sparkley! Now I have everything I need to wear her so she's complete! I still need to alter the dress a little but it's still good enough to wear so yay! woop woop! I've had this on my CI for two years XD Finally glad it's been done!

10th August 2011: Dress Arrived! Yay the dress arrived! But I'm going to have to edit it a little bit >_< The bust is quite loose and the neck strap is too long XD so I can do that fine. I's a little bit tight around my hips and bum but not enough to make it extremely uncomfortable...but I can't sit down xD I'm going to spend the next week extreme dieting just so its a bit more comfortable XD but yay! i do love it =D also the reason its a bit ruffled up is coz of the strap length problem xD and my wig was a bit scruffy D:

20th July 2011: Dress by 2aplus2 My dress is finished! :D I know it's hard to see behind all the labels and such but they've so sent me a picture and will be sending it once my other dress for Jane Porter completed! I absolutely love this <3! I can't wait for it to arrive!!

25th June 2011: Being Commissioned! (Again) Once again this is being commissioned! I reeeeally hated the material I bought and my job really takes it out of me. Since Rinoa is my ultimate favourite characters I'd get really iffy about getting this dress wrong. So one day I will remake it myself but only after I've taken some lessons and feel confident enough in doing it :) 2aplus2 on eBay is making this and today it's all been paid for and agreed that I'll get it in time. I reeeally can't wait for Ayacon now!

18th April 2011: Material Test So i put the white satin under the gold chiffron and places the ribbon on top to see how the colours match. It's a little darker than i wanted it to be but I think it'll look okay once all together :) - the picture was taken from my iphone so its even darker in the picture

27th March 2011: No Organza After working with the blue organza for my Ballgown Rinoa I refuse to work with it again >_< it's an utter bitch and rather stiff. So Phee suggested chiffron, it has the same sort of transparency and is rather flowy. So I've bought 2 mtrs for £9.97 and if it turns out to be too dark I have time to buy more appropriate material. However if this does suit it I've got everything I need and can start as soon as Kitacon is finished :D

27th January 2011: Making Well I doubt I can afford this commision at all unless I'm lucky enough to get a job by April which I doubt xD and I had mentioned to FusionRose that I had some white satin in my room from when I failed to make wings one expo. So she suggested I use that to make the dress and then found me some light gold Organza to use as the over layer to get the creamy colour =D then I've just found some ribbon that would be gorgeous for the straps and both the organza and ribbon are cheeeeap =D I need to buy a wig for all my other Rinoa's anyway (since I really dont like the one I have) and I need to upload a photo of my new shoes bought for me by Phee for Xmas =D so hopefully I'll make this okay @_@

21st October 2010: Cream or White? I'm having real trouble deciding what colour her dress actually is. I prefer the sort of creamy colour than just a plain white one. And my shoes are a little ivory/creamy colour. I'm having this commisioned by KitsuneCosplay so I have to tell the colour soon. I just have to decide what I want >.<
